Clicking 10 or 20 seconds in the browser would have told you two it's 
not the case for at least some of the packages (I guess the majority, 
but I didn't check). Just picked the first one in the list:
12-Dec-2007 14:55
14-May-2008 11:18

And it are definitely different builds:

[thl at thl ~]$ repoquery --repoid epel4 --qf '%{buildtime}' obby.x86_64
[thl at thl ~]$ repoquery --repoid epel4-testing --qf '%{buildtime}' 
[thl at thl ~]$

Spec files are identical, nevertheless that's not what we want.
